A collaboration between Madison Creech and Molly Koehn, Potentially Invasive, Probably Harmful includes a combination of bird imagery, eucalyptus leaves and eco prints. Native to Australia, eucalyptus trees were brought to the United States in the late 1800’s. The trees flourished in their new environment, but the rapid growing eucalyptus are continually altering the biosphere by replacing native plants and disturbing habitats for many native bird species. It is causing a drop in species diversity. These installations speak to both the positive and negative effects of eucalyptus trees on birds in North America.
